Chelsea Handler` - Chelsea Lately end date confirmed

Chelsea Handler's US talk show will end on August 26.

The 39-year-old presenter - who confirmed in March she intended to leave 'Chelsea Lately' at the end of her contract - will depart E! three months before her current agreement comes to an end, and is delighted with the work she did for the network.

Chelsea said in a statement: ''I myself am more surprised than anyone that I was able to hold down a job for seven years, and it was a fantastic seven years.

''I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I'm glad I went.''

Suzanne Kolb, the president of E!, praised the star for adding ''a distinct voice to late night with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary.''

Until the station develops a possible replacement show, it will air E! News in the 11pm slot.

Chelsea - who is believed to have made around $9 million a year from the show - has previously voiced her concerns about the E! network and described it as ''a sad, sad place to live.''

She also said: ''They don't know what they're doing. They have no ideas. It's a failure.''

It is rumoured the comic will land a new contract with online streaming service Netflix.
